Pink flamingo jammy pants

Sewing from a pattern and using new fabric instead of  “altered clothing”  it was fun and in my world- everyone needs pink flamingo pj pants,

Boro stitching....

I’m still drawn to boro stitching-so meditative and calming. This is next project, wools and antique buttons.

My “happy place”- I always feel so refreshed and restored after a few days at the beach.

Making things because I get sad if I don’t......

1.take a knit shirt with the sleeves and neckline you like-cut off the body of the shirt
2.take a shirt with the body you like- cut off the sleeves at the armholes-this will add s little more length to final garment 
3. Select a scrap or remnant of a fabric that coordinates- (this is the bottom of a maxi dress that is now a knee length dress)
4. Sew all 3 together for a new shirt with preferred neckline, sleeves and longer length!
